Community Emergency Response Team Recruiting

Community Emergency Response Team Recruiting

December 22nd, 2013
ceertttPotter County Department of Emergency Services is stepping up its efforts to build teams of local residents who are trained to react to disasters and other public emergencies, so that they can assist fire, ambulance, and other personnel. Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training educates people about fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace when professional responders are not immediately available. The volunteers are prepared to take care of their families first and to then take care of their neighbors. Each local CERT has a leader and a designated meeting area in the community. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness. For more information, call 274-8900 see the FEMA/CERT website here.

I thought by the way potter county hires more than they need everything was paid for by the fed. Now we need volunteers overseen by EMS ?
